Streetball legend The Professor breaks down how to do Rajon Rondo’s iconic behind-the-back pass

Watching the iconic behind-the-back fake pass that made champion Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo famous (or infamous, depending on your fandom) is a little bit like watching a street ball legend go to work on the asphalt courts of New York City’s Rucker Park and elicited the same sorts of oohs and aahs one might hear at the historic streetball destination renowned for such flashy but effective play.

Given that, a recent video from And1 streetball icon The Professor showing how to do the trademark Rondo fakeout “pass” makes all the sense in the world seeing as the celebrated basketball wizard has long made a name for himself psyching out his opponents on the court with such deceptive moves.

To see the clip for yourself — and to pick up the move if you are more gifted than many of us are in this regard — check out the video embedded below courtesy of The Professor’s official YouTube channel.
